Episode Notes Kimberley Guilfoyle is the kind of character who shows up a lot these days, and shows up a lot in American history: demagogue. Her personal history is checkered, as she has been the first lady of California, married to Democratic Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom, and is currently dating Donald Trump Junior. She doesn't have a consistent allegiance, or an agenda, other than to remain in the spotlight for as long as she can. We rebuke ger in Get Thee Behind Me, Felicia. Then, in Pilars of Strength, we discuss Queen Esther. The Book of Esther is a good read, It is short, and full of palace intrigue, and the kind of twists that made Alexander Dumas a popular author; assasination attempts against the King, secret plots, and, like the story of Daniel, a clever attack on the Hebrew People. Like the Book of Daniel, our brave and resourceful Queen is able to use her favor with the King to advantage; changing the nature of one of those unchangeable Persian edicts. It is a good, ten chapter read. God is not referenced directly, not even once. If anything, God is present and the force that directs the destiny of the orphan girl, her cousin Moredecai, and even the mighty Persian empire.

Episode Notes Recently, Shaun King, writer and activist , made this unusual proposition: “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been… They are a gross form [of] white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.” This idea has gotten the kind of reception you would expect. Shaun King has been threatened, and his idea, ironically, has been labeled as racist. So in today’s episode we will explore racism, white supremacy and the depiction of Christ in our churches.

Episode Notes Episode 28: Christ Jesus Not Necessarily the Good News Good ways to hold the bible: in both hands, under your arm, resting on your lap, or with a lectern. Bad ways to hold the bible: upside down in your fist over your head as though it were a bludgeoning weapon after ordering peaceful protesters and clergy tear gassed and removed so you can be photographed in front of a church that you have never set foot in and where you do not pray.

The distinction being Jesus the historical figure that lived and died about 33 AD, founding a religious movement, and Jesus the Christ, Son of God, Savior of the World. To secular people the transition from Jesus to Christ is puzzling. How did this carpenter attain this exalted position? We learned, last week, about the many attempts to separate Jesus the teacher, and philosopher from the divine Christ. We also learned that it is not only difficult to do, but for practical purposes, impossible. So when did the transition take place? Here is the inside scoop: It never did.

Episode Notes Cannon Fodder Two Sikh doctors in Canada, brothers, made the difficult decision to shave their beards in order to serve their patients. Sources: https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/16/health/sikh-doctors-beards-coronavirus-trnd/index.html The More You Know We can assume, safely, that Jesus existed. This is not a joke; there was a historical-critical trend that denied that Jesus existed at all. There are no documents written by Jesus himself, and the best sources outside of the gospels, are Josephus, a jewish historian whose very brief observation may have been altered, and Roman historian Tacitus, in AD 116. There are other references, one in a Talmudic commentary that mentions a bastard sorcerer who deceives jews with egyptian black magic, and a stoic philosopher who gave a flattering reference to Jesus as a wise king who lives on through his just rules. The records we have in the Gospels are religious biographies, full of miracles and exorcisms. If you don't believe in those things, you might think the whole story is a fiction. Can we extract something like a biography from a Hagiography? Separate the exorcisms, miracles, and divine plans from the Gospels?
